The Human Story
The Human Story is a guide to human ancestors, from the earliest hominins dating back 6 to 7 million years through to our own species, Homo sapiens.
Over the part twenty years there has been an explosion of species' names in the record of human evolution, due both to new discoveries and to a growing understanding of the diversity that existed in the past. Drawing on this new information, The Human Story demystifies the fascinating cast of characters who hold the secret to human origins.
The book covers the main sites, individual fossils, key discoveries and basic facts of each species—what it looked like, what it ate, how and when it lived, as well as how we know all this.
